Creating Learning Journeys in Learn.UQ

Consider creating a learning journey for your students by combining different elements of our virtual learning environment into a sequence. Within Learning Resources, you can:

  1. Add links to individual lecture recordings, or embed the video as a thumbnail using Kaltura
  2. Add Interactive Learning Objects (H5P) to reinforce learning content
  3. Promote engagement using Padlet
  4. Link assessments at appropriate points of the learning journey

Updated resources and personal consultations for Learn.UQ exams available

Updated resources are now available for the preparation and delivery of Learn.UQ exams (both invigilated and non-invigilated). To assist with Learn.UQ exam setup, the eLearning Solutions Service offers personal consultations for course teaching staff, support staff and designers on selecting and configuring technologies.

Create interactive learning objects with H5P

H5P provides an easy way to create small Interactive Learning Objects that can be inserted into courses. There are many different H5P content types that can be used to test knowledge retrieval, comprehension and analysis and to create rich content that can be sequenced. To request a H5P license, please email

See the H5P content types guide >>

Do not use Delegated Grading on Blackboard assignments

Due to known issues with the Delegated Grading feature, it is not a recommended setting for Learn.UQ (Blackboard) assignments. For step-by-step instructions, refer to the Create an Assignment - Individual and Create an Assignment – Group guides.

Turnitin - Roster Sync for late enrolments

Turnitin assignments only contain students who were enrolled in a course when the assignment was created. To allow students to submit assignments where they have enrolled in the course after you have created the assignment, you will need to update the class list using the Roster Sync function.

See the guide >>

Course Insights – investigate student assessment results

Course Insights is UQ's own course-level learning analytics dashboard, available to all course coordinators via Learn.UQ. The Assessment section provides staff with an overview of student assessment results, as well as an in-depth analysis of each individual assessment task.

See the guide >>

Working with Files – Digital Essentials module
